So here’s my question. It’s Monday morning and you are jazzed about the great networking opportunities that await you. You’re dressed to the nines, get out of your car, walk to the door …
Are you going to slip a brown paper bag over your head before you walk into the room?
Sounds like a silly, even stupid, question .. right? But now let me ask you this, do you have a professional picture on all of your social media sites? If not, I’m very curious … why not? Isn’t not having a photo akin to networking with a paper bag over your head? Do you like putting a face with a name, or doesn’t it matter to you?
And here’s my final question. If you don’t have a picture, are you networking or are you simply place holding?
With the critical part that a visible online presence plays in managing your career, a compelling profile and professional photograph are two very key components!
